This is what the mascot of a university looks like when they are called the Patriots but the school wants to be politically correct:
Bye bye, Gunston.
So after eight years of living with the big green Muppet-like mascot, a mascot that actually looks like a patriot was introduced this week.
While many students liked Gunston, many of the alumni at George Mason University did not. I am going to give credit to the alumni who posted on the sports message board CAAZone.com. Well done Zoners. The Patriot is a more fitting mascot for a team that has made it to the Final 4 and the #1 Up-and-Coming School in the country.
Now let's get back to the Final 4 soon.
